Sun Devils to battle Coquitlam in JB football final

West Kelowna team defeats Victoria handily to advance to provincial finale

One more win. That’s what stands between the West Kelowna Sun Devils and a second straight B.C. junior bantam football title for a team from the Central Okanagan.

On Sunday at Langley’s McLeod Stadium, the Sun Devils  will take on the Coquitlam Vikings for the provincial championship.

The Kelowna Lions won the B.C. junior bantam  title last year.

The West Kelowna side qualified for the final with a convincing semi-final win over the host Victoria Renegades last weekend at Bear Mountain Stadium.

The Sun Devils scored on their first possession and never looked back, ripping the  Renegades 48-0 .

On offence, Salem Clark connected with Jesse Sligter for a 30-yard reception which set up Ty Truong for a six-yard TD run.  Clark threw for three TDs and 185 yards , while Nate Humes scored three majors, including receptions from 65 and 40 yards to go with a 55-yard run.

Hunter Desson returned an interception 40 yards and closed the deal with a six-yard TD run. Nick Kopp had six carries and a major while Chris Smith added a 45-yard TD reception and three converts.

The highlight of the game was  Humes ‘ 65-yard pass reception where he hurdled a tackler on his way to the end zone.

Troung also picked off two passes as the defense held Victoria to less than 100 yards total offence.

“The boys are playing at such a high level right now and we go into the final with everyone healthy,” said Sun Devils head coach Chris Smith.

“We are so thrilled with our progress this year and are looking forward to the provincial final Sunday.”
